Bespoke Business Ambassadors™
Like a beautifully tailored suit, we act as Bespoke Business Ambassadors™ and carefully customize our services to elevate the firms in The Highness Embassy (our carefully curated portfolio of clients).
The Highness model innovates the global advisory business and addresses what we have found to be critical shortfalls in the traditional business world. It is our belief that we can all prosper by thinking bigger and acting better.
Our model is unconstrained allowing us to offer valuable strategic advice, ambassadorship services and business architecture suited to the needs of our clientele. We take a fearless, organic and creative approach to growing the businesses of our clients. No rules. No ceilings. No thumbs.™ The fluidity of brand enhances our value as it allows everyone encountered to be a prospect and every interaction to be a potential opportunity for the clients we represent.
The Highness Experience feels like none other. It is a made-to-order cocktail of progressiveness and modernity blended with trusted character and old-world charm.
We are industry agnostic. We believe in the company you keep and therefore, are by referral only.
